    Seller, beware: Feds cracking down on garage sales

    These cats are out of control.

    WASHINGTON — If you're planning a garage sale or organizing a church bazaar, you'd best beware: You could be breaking a new federal law. As part of a campaign called Resale Roundup, the federal government is cracking down on the secondhand sales of dangerous and defective products.

    The initiative, which targets toys and other products for children, enforces a new provision that makes it a crime to resell anything that's been recalled by its manufacturer.

    Should research a bit. CPSC Launches Resale Round-up Campaign to Keep Dangerous Recalled Products Out of Resale Stores and Off the Internet

    CPSC’s goal is to protect consumers by getting dangerous recalled products out of resale stores and off the Internet. Re-selling recalled products is a violation of federal law.

    Before re-selling products, CPSC encourages re-sellers to check its Web site, www.cpsc.gov, to determine if the product has been recalled.

    CPSC is partnering with the National Association of Resale & Thrift Shops (NARTS), the Salvation Army, state agencies, and others to alert re-sellers about recalled products, product hazards including cribs that do not meet current safety standards, drawstrings in children’s clothing, and the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA).

    “NARTS fully supports CPSC’s outreach efforts to resale stores,” said Adele Meyer, NARTS’ Executive Director

    The agency’s education campaign, which will include safety seminars for resale store owners and employees, is part of CPSC’s commitment to protecting consumers, especially children.
    It's an educational campaign designed to get with resale stores like goodwill and show them how to comply with the law.

    Those darn liberals trying to protect children from dangerous recalled products with, gasp, education....

    More like those darn Libbos trying harder and harder to get into our personal lives. It's all about control.

    Nice spin. Notice you did not bother to comment on the factually inaccurate parts of your article.

    I expressed my opinion. You're the one with the, "we're here to help you", spin machine.

    Nothing you can say will take way from the interventionism that the Libbos want so bad. If you can control what we sell at a yard sale, you can control just about anything. This is why limits were put on the government.

    Here, let me help, you're supposed to say "oh, sorry, my bad, I misread the article." See, that's how normal people do it.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    Only if they have changed their opinion on the subject. I haven't, so...

    So, despite the facts, you still think that garage salers should beware?

    Despite what facts?

    “This handbook will help sellers of used products identify types of potentially hazardous products that could harm children or others. CPSC’s laws and regulations apply to anyone who sells or distributes consumer products. This includes thrift stores, consignment stores, charities, and individuals holding yard sales and flea markets.”

    I stand corrected. I wonder how they would enforce such a thing which is on such a massive scale. Is there a website to look at recalls?
